Ross Gittins' article "Politicians should get wings clipped on infrastructure" (December 4) demonstrates he does not understand the freight challenge facing Australia.
Road has three major interstate freeways on the east coast, but rail has one, and with freight volumes set to more than double by 2050 that one is not going to cut it.
If we don't build inland rail, be prepared to spend double building roads that can accommodate those freight volumes.
With inland rail, which is backed up by a business case produced by PWC in 2015, we will have a resilient rail network with multiple pathways, that will carry the longer more efficient trains of the future and bring further prosperity to regional Australia.
When you think about what the country needs in terms of infrastructure, you will understand why inland RAil is important and we are getting on with it.
John Fullerton, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Australian Rail Track Corporation
